INFPs, how do you listen to others' problems and give advice?
When listening to someone, I listen hard for that which is truthful which they need to hear. Sometimes phrases or sentences drop into my head and they are exactly what they need.
I find this easier if I don't know that person all that well.
However the more I know the person, or the more emotionally involved I get (with the person or the situation), the more this fails me. I am no longer able to "hear" what they need to hear and tell it to them. I even find myself resorting to cliches, which I hate.
Am I the only one who does this or has this problem?
